About the work
‘UNIFIED’: We are living in a world of so-called 'free choice.' We are forced to believe that originality and chase for personal goals can make our lives fulfilled. It is a well-designed illusion, sophisticated enough to disguise soft oppression in the form of quasi-voluntary acts. Your clothing is you. But what if your clothing is somebody else? In the world of unified appearance, similar behaviors and clothing, a true self disappears. A unified look is a result of social expectations, corporate rules, and compromises replace individuality with an anonymous, overwhelming mass.
